Having a relaxing bedroom is so important. After working so hard all day long, the best thing for you is to come home to a place that you can retreat to and not think about anything at all. The mind needs to refresh itself and rejuvenate and what better way to do that then sit in your room and watch a movie or read a book and just switch off your brain? However, if your room does not have a relaxing atmosphere then the only idea is null and void. Here are a few tips for making your bedroom into the sanctuary it should be even if the rest of the house is not up to par.

Decorate with neutral and pastel colors.
Neutrals and pastels are much more calming than bright colors and accents. Try not to use too many colors. If you want an accent, then do something like decorating with white and gray and using a pale yellow as the accent.

Make your bed as comfortable as can be.
Don’t buy your mattress used. Go to a reputable mattress store and have and employee help you. The people that work at mattress stores are actually trained in sleeping patterns and know which mattresses will help which ailments depending on your situation. Take your time deciding and pick a good one. This is imperative to relaxation. You need to be able to get the best sleep that you possibly can in order for your mind and body to get refreshment. Most mattress stores will allow you to make payments if you want to get one sooner than later.

Minimize the clutter in your room.
Clutter can stress you out without even realizing it. Clutter also attracts dust which gets in your lungs and makes it more and more difficult to breathe over time. So that means more cleaning and less relaxing. The less clutter you have, the more you will be able to enjoy your room. To many little knick knacks is overstimulating for our brains and that’s why we can find it hard to relax in some places. A few pictures here and there of loved one and a lamp of course is fine but if you have tons of ornaments and decorations scattered around on shelves and bookcases and desks and dressers, they all have to go. It might even be a good idea to get rid of the shelves and some of the other furniture so that you are tempted to start cluttering up again.

Purchase a couple of green plants.
Plants not only look nice around the room but they also give off oxygen. This will literally make it easier to breathe in your room. The rest of the house could be bordering on toxic, but you step into room and shut the door; those plants will give you a whole new lease on life. You’ll just have to make sure that you get plants that will do well inside with minimal sunlight or maintenance. The last thing you want is another responsibility on your plate.

Shop at the right stores.
Stores have agendas and ideas behind their marketing and products. You should research every store that you buy from mattress stores to decor places. This way, you know that you are buying the right kinds of things for your home. Look for places that support good causes and make sure that you don’t fall prey to a company that has less than perfect values behind their doors. It’s important for the Feng Shui of your room that even the places you buy from are peaceful and of good moral standing.
It doesn’t matter if you live alone, have kids or live with friends, there are times when you just don’t want to see the rest of your house. That may be because it’s a mess or it may be because you don’t like how it’s decorated or you simply don’t find the living room furniture comfortable. Whatever the reason may be, make sure that everything from the mattresses in your room so the paint on the walls are exactly how you want them to be. Also, keeping in clean and the bed made will help you to relax as soon as you get home.
